What is BodyTalk?

The outstanding growth and success of The BodyTalk System is fueled by these factors:

 Good results occur in nearly every sphere of health care.

 It is totally non-invasive and absolutely safe. There are no contraindications to its use.

 No diagnosis is given, no medications prescribed, and no invasive techniques imposed upon the patient. The BodyTalk System does not conflict with, or legally contravene, any existing health care system or law.

 Patients thoroughly enjoy the sessions and the results are evident within all aspects of health: mind, body, and spirit.

Clinical results have shown that once the communications systems of the body have been reestablished and the body mind complex synchronized, the body is capable of healing itself at a deep and lasting level.

Of course there are times that natural healing is limited. The typical emergency, such as a car accident, where the body is in crisis, attests to the need for skilled intervention in the form of modern medicine.

Vacation as medicine

More than half of U.S. workers say doctors should be able to prescribe vacations as a curative option for stress-related maladies, a survey indicates.

The survey, The Takeaways from Getaways, commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, indicated more than 9-out-of-10 U.S. employees reported feeling happier after taking a vacation and 77 percent said their overall health improves after a getaway.

The survey found more than half of employed Americans have either lost unused vacation time-off from work or know someone who has.

The economic downturn was not a major reason for putting off taking time. Eighty-two percent of survey participants reported vacations become more important in tough economic times.

Eighty-two percent of survey participants said their happiest moments came from vacation experiences and 59 percent of employed Americans said losing paid vacation time decreased one’s well-being.

The survey, conducted by Heart+Mind Strategies, surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults ages 21-74 who have taken at least one overnight trip for vacation or pleasure in the last 12 months. The survey’s margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.adults ages 21-74 who have taken at least one overnight trip for vacation or pleasure in the last 12 months.

8 benefits of detox cleansing

1. Boosts Your Energy

Many detox program followers report feeling more energetic. This would make sense because while you’re detoxing you’re stopping the influx of the things that caused you to need a detox in the first place. By cutting out the sugar, caffeine, trans fat, saturated fat, and replacing them with fresh fruits and vegetables, you’ll be getting a natural energy boost, one that comes without a resultant crash. It’s vital to stay well hydrated while on any detox program, and that can also be a source of increased energy if you typically don’t get enough water throughout the day..resultant crash.

2. Rids the Body of Any Excess Waste

The biggest thing that detoxing helps with is allowing the body to rid itself of any excess waste it’s been storing. Most detox programs are designed to stimulate the body to purge itself, helping the liver do its thing as well as the kidneys and colon. Cleansing the colon is an important part of the detoxing process because those toxins need to exit the body, and a backed up colon can cause them to be reintroduced into the body, rather than exiting as planned. Sticking with fruits and vegetables even after the detox program is completed is a good way to keep things moving..storing.

3. Helps with Weight Loss

It’s easy to see how a detox diet would cause you to lose weight in the short term, but a healthier way to look at it would be to establish long-term eating habits, and rid yourself of unhealthy habits. Many times it is the drastic reduction in calories and rapid weight loss that is focused on, especially in the media. But these short-term results won’t last if you don’t make it a point to replace bad foods with good, and use your newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.

4. Stronger Immune System

When you detox the body you free up your organs to function the way they should. This helps to give your immune system a boost since you’ll be able to absorb nutrients better, including Vitamin C. Many of the herbs you take while on a detox will help the lymphatic system, which plays a big role in keeping you healthy and firing on all cylinders. Many detox programs also focus on light exercises which help to circulate lymph fluid through the body and helps it to drain, strengthening your immune system in the process.

5. Improved Skin

Your skin is your largest organ, so it only makes sense that it would show positive results from a detox program. One way to help your detoxing efforts is to take a sauna to help the body sweat out additional toxins. You can expect clearer, smoother skin at the end of your detox plan. It’s also been reported that detoxing can help with acne, although the condition may worsen before it gets better as the toxins are released. You may find that your skin itches or gets patchy before clearing up, but this is part of the process and is a sign that you’re on the right track with your program.

6. Better Breath

Follow a detox program that includes a colon cleanse because those toxins need to be released from the body. It’s been theorized that one contributor to bad breath is a backed up colon. When you are able to clear it out and get your digestive system functioning well again, you may find that your breath improves. Be aware that your breath may actually worsen during the detoxing process, but when it’s finished it will be better. This is natural   and occurs as toxins are released from the body.

7. Promotes Healthy Changes

It’s hard to change a long-standing habit, and a detox program – no matter how long – is one way to put a wedge between your old ways and your new ones. If you have addictions to sugar, caffeine, fried, or crunchy foods you can use a detox program to help you kill those cravings. Often if you just try to quit eating those foods or drinking those beverages you’ll have limited success, and go back to your old ways. But if you cleanse the body and replace those foods with healthier choices, you can retrain yourself and be more likely to stick to your new habits.Often if you just try to quit eating those foods or drinking those beverages you’ll have limited success, and go back to your old ways.

8. Clearer Thinking

A good detox program will pay some attention to your state of mind during the cleanse. The use of meditation is often recommended as a way to get back in touch with your body during this time of purging and cleansing of toxins. Detox followers often say that they lose that sense of fogginess, and are able to think more clearly during a detox than when not on it. It makes sense, since many of the sugar-filled and fat-filled foods that surround us each day will cause us to feel lethargic and can factor heavily in the quality of our thinking.
